What a beautiful time of year for festive outdoor dinners!  I’m prepping for a harvest themed dinner in late September, early October to take advantage of the beautifully colored trees we usually have in our yard around that time.  I’ve begun to put together some ideas, and this easy bunting features handkerchiefs that you could already have on hand.  If not, your local craft store would have a bunch of colors for around a dollar each.  The process is simple:

ONE cut the hanky into quarters, TWO fold diagonally around a piece of twine or rope. THREE secure with a few staples.

Repeat as necessary with all of your handkerchief quarters, or throw in some vintage scarves or tea towels to add more pattern and color. I’m able to carefully remove the staples from my vintage hankies later and keep them relatively unscathed.

There will be more details of the dinner to come!  I’ll show you each little bit along the way, and then the big picture after the party! This would be so cute in team colors for a tailgate, or in all vintage for a shower.  Happy Harvest!
